I bought these to remove fence posts that had broken at ground level in my wifes horse paddocks and they worked far beyond my expectations they gripped really well while pulling the broken posts out of the ground
I purchased these tongs to move about 15 downed trees due to hurricane Sandy. These are well made, and super strong. They dig in and hold firm. I have used them both by dragging behind my truck and lifting with my tractor bucket. The only improvement I would make is a latching chain hook. For the money you will be very pleased.
I use these tongs to tow railroad ties around my property with a garden tractor. I attach tongs to lumber and haul away with a short chain. No problems. Best price I found. No local store even came close to the size I needed or the price.
I am using these tongs to move RR Ties. It is very useful and after I finish, I am going to move logs. It is so nice to hang onto the tie or log and start pulling. Saves me a ton of time verses hanging a chain around the tie or log.
this thing works great! so far used it to pull a cord of oak out of the woods and load the logs on a trailer. it's still a two man job for some one to hook up the tongs while someone runs the tractor but could be done by one person just slower. you could even use it with an atv or pickup with a tow chain.
With exceptional price I wasn't sure about what I would get. Excellent shipping. Heavy tongs. Impressed with thick paint with good coverage. Proof was in the use. Had several small to midsize trees to move on property. Some large (leg size) limbs also. I connected Tongs to pull chain and had son clamp them to tree with minimum pressure. Great hold, No slip. Dragged several about a100 yds or so. No problems. Some areas had bad undergrowth and even though it is not recommended, I raised boom on tractor to get tongs up with no slips or problems. If I ever need another, I'll buy again. Good Product and price. Continue to buy from Northern Tools.
I was skeptical when I bought this, as it was smaller than I wanted, but after a full year of treating it like a larger tool, it continues to perform well. I have used it to load everything from fresh cut timber, to 30 ft. sections of power pole, and as long as I keep the points sharp (they do dull after abuse), it does the job I ask of it. If my local store ever stocks a larger size, I'll probably buy it, but until then, I can count on this one to perform.
These tongs are adequate after you grind the inside of the points out to change the angle, sharpen the points, and weld a lug stop at the hinge to keep the reshaped and sharpened points from hitting each other. Be sure to bring a hammer to drive the points into the log
The first time I used the tongs, they broke just above the hook. I e-mailed Northern Tool on a Sunday evening and a new grab tong arrived on Thursday. Northern Tool's service was absolutely fantastic. I will continue to purchase from Northern Tool and let all my friends know about the great service. I have used the new tongs and they are working very well moving logs.
These tongs are perfect for the intended use of dragging firewood logs to be bucked up by my wood shed. This has eliminated my need for using my S-10 pickup in the woods as I now use my Kubota to drag the logs and don't have to cut and load in the woods and maneuver the truck in places the Kubota can more easily operate.
